I am seeking an artist to animate 3 short promotional 2D trailers of an upcoming released sci-fi fantasy eBook, available for online download (Kindle, Google etc).
The link below is an example. Please check first to understand what you will do: (Trailer 1 link)
The artist is REQUIRED to adopt the following:
[1...] The trailer is colored with at least flat-shading (e.g. anime). But a more complicated style (e.g. gradation, semi-realistic etc.) is preferred.
[2...] Able to draw the smallest numbers of keyframe to achieve the ideas. However, storyboarding style (i.e. still picture animation) is not accepted.
[3...] Able to do a smooth cam movement (e.g. shake, tilt, pan, lens blur etc.) and good drawing perspectives.
[4...] Able to show the ability to create a visually pleased, and visually impact images on drawing, coloring and camera works. (High selection chance)
[5...] Open-minded on drawing "anti-norms" animation (e.g. female violence, erotica, anti-feminism etc.)
[6...] MUST follow a provided STYLE GUIDE (for important visual details)
[7...] Keep the work confidential until the trailers are released.
[1...] Trailer format: 1920x1080, 24 fps rendered (not keyframe rate).
[2...] The trailer duration (i.e. the portions you animate) as follows: Trailer 1 (17~20s), Trailer 2 (17~20s), Trailer 3 (28~32s).
[3...] The trailer main focus is on characters & actions. Only simple background is needed unless, in some shots, specific buildings or environment are indicated in the animatics.
[4...] The tentative deadline of this project is mid Sept 2016.
[5...] Budget 800~1000 USD for all 3 trailers.
For our consideration, please attach  a BRIEF introduction of you, and  showing previous works ([The administrator removed this message for encouraging communication outside [url removed, login to view], which breaches our Terms and Conditions - Section 13: Communication With Other Users.].
Tips: We won't read long CV, and won't search to see an artwork among your huge numbers of works. Showing good sci-fi animation (including pretty boy & girl characters) will be an advantage. All the best.
